I have recently lost my job after 6 years of employment. I am 55+ and finding it very difficult to find my next job. I have been working small part-time jobs to keep earning money to pay bills and keep my family healthy. However, over the month of Dec., the job market has really slowed, and I am now 2 months behind on my mortgage.
My wife has gone to Alaska to work in the seafood industry as a seasonal worker to help make ends meet.
Writing this is very difficult for me. I have always been able to provide for myself and my family. Not being able to do so now is very stressful and depressing. I am continuing to seek my next job but, in the meantime, I need to ask for assistance.
If I am not able to catch up on my mortgage, my wife and I will lose our home. We both really love our home and dread having it foreclosed on.
The downward trend started a couple years ago when my wife lost her good paying job at a hotel when she became ill and required surgery. Her job was terminated while she was out on disability recovering from her surgery. It was at this time that we started having trouble paying our bills and mortgage. However, we continued to keep our heads above water. I worked two jobs when I could to try and get a little ahead. So, for that past couple of years, we have been struggling but, making it. However, now with the loss of my job and all of our savings depleted, I need ask for some help.
My 1st wish it to get a new job, my backup wish is to receive some financial assistance. I do have the option of selling my car but, if I do that then finding a job will be even more difficult due to the restriction placed on how close the job needs to be to my home.
I have never had to ‘beg’ for financial assistance and this is quite the humbling experience. If you decide to assist my wife and myself, know that it will be greatly appreciated.
I humbly ask for financial assistance for myself and my wife, so that we can remain in our home. Your kind financial assistance is requested from a very humble man.
God bless you and yours.
